Melting Ice/ Creative Exchange

 Reflections of rusty metal, ice and grasses

Yesterday (Saturday) was a mild February day (for central Ontario) and even though the sky was overcast and gloomy, it was a fine day to take my camera on a road trip. Well, my husband and I had a few errands so why not let my camera tag along, right?

Lines, cracks and holes in the ice

it was cold though wasn't it? Mind you I'd rather have that sort of day than a typical winter's day.

Loved the photos,

We haven't had much frozen water this year, only a sheen of ice formed on the pond near our house, and it was gone in a few days. No ice skating this year. Love that last shot.

Andy said...

A common sight this winter.

Jill said...

Great reflections! The ice shot is so interesting.

Kate said...

The texture of the frozen ice on the bottom photo is finely detailed. Wonderful contrast with the twigs, both is form ad color.

It's always a good idea to take a camera along, just so you can photos like these!

We haven't had much ice at home this year. Our fish pond generally freezes over, but it hasn't done so this year - yet. ;)

Melting ice is very graphic.

RedPat said...

Fabulous shots EG! I actually saw some ice today on a small pond in High Park.

Lowell said...

Wow! If you accidentally fell into that icy water, you could be impaled upon all manner of things! I hope there was a warning sign somewhere!

Michelle said...

Snow and ice is such a fabulous medium to work with, here in Perth at the moment we have sun, sun and more sun and then hot winds from inland.. Love the icy patterns and reflections EG!

Paulie said...

What neat catches! I especially loved the last one with all the designs in the ice. . .

So nicely seen and photographed!

What stunning captures. The ice really plays the light.

Ellie said...

At least the ice is melting that means it must be getting a bit warmer. Makes for a great picture though :))

Rosie said...

These are wonderful! It's cold here too, however no sign yet of melting ice.

Dorian Susan said...

Glad you took your camera along. I love reflection shots and that first image-with the rusty bars vs. nature is beautifully captured.

Genie said...

Such interesting and icy shots. It is nice watching the ice melting. All the light is so nice. The second shot makes me think a little bird - his eye between the 2 green leaves - is popping out his head. Wonderful captures. genie
